Travel Consultations

The University of Northern Iowa Student Health Clinic offers travel consultations for students, faculty and staff. It is essential that you request your travel consultation as soon as you have a complete itinerary (including flights/layovers). Appointments will be scheduled 6-8 weeks prior to departure. During your consultation, recommended and/or required vaccines will be discussed, as well as other medications possibly needed for travel. Several vaccines are given as a series and can take several weeks and/or months to complete.  Planning early will allow you to avoid possible appointment waiting lists and potential vaccine/medication shortages. Please review the UNI Student Health Clinic International Travel Health Checklist.

The University of Northern Iowa Student Health Clinic will try to accommodate all students, faculty, and staff, but at peak times it may take up to 6 weeks to get an appointment.

Mandatory information required prior to your appointment:

1.   Prior to requesting your appointment, you must have a complete travel itinerary (including flights and layovers).

2.  Complete a Request for Travel Consultation.  This form will be reviewed by a registered nurse and you will be contacted to schedule your appointment.  No appointments will be scheduled without a completed request.

3.   Bring your health insurance card with you to your appointment. See below for possible fees.


Travel Consultation Fees

Requests for travel consultations will be reviewed and a determination made on the level of travel consultation required for your trip.  Travelers to low risk countries with up-to-date immunizations may not require a full consultation.  When you are contacted by the travel health nurse to schedule your appointment they will inform you of the cost and length of appointment for your consultation visit.  Travel consultations are not included in the mandatory student health fee.  Students not enrolled in summer classes may request a travel consultation during the summer months.

You will be billed for vaccines and/or travel medications.  Fees for vaccines/immunizations and medication will vary. It is your responsibility to contact your insurance company prior to your travel consultation to determine coverage for these services. Keep in mind that different insurance plans cover different services and you will be responsible for any unpaid charges. The Student Health Clinic will file a claim for students, faculty, and staff to their health insurance company. For any unpaid charges, UNI students may charge this to their U-bill account. Faculty and staff may have their travel consultation and immunizations payroll deducted.
